“CLICK” One Novel :: Ten Authors November 27, 2012

Filed under: Science Fiction Books — herricklrc @ 12:52 pm

Image“Click” took a new spin on the traditional novel.  Instead of having just one author, this novel had ten! Yes…you heard me right, TEN authors. A camera, some photographs, a box of seven shells, and a whole lot of mysteries are some of the things Maggie and Jason inherited from their grandfather George “Gee”.  Gee was a famous photographer who left clues about his life to the ones who he loved most. He wanted his family to understand his life’s work and discover the adventures he had around the world.

Even though the story seemed a little disconnected and predictable at times, overall it was a good read. Having ten authors can really make a story go all over the place, but I thought they did a nice job by separating each chapter by a different character.  Each chapter brought a new adventure as the two main characters Maggie and Jason discovered the puzzles their beloved Gee left behind.  Anyone who has lost someone they love will appreciate the gifts and memories that Gee had left behind.
